Disaster Recovery Committee

Formation


The Clayton County Disaster Recovery Committee (CCDRC) was formed in 1999 after major flooding. Additional needs were identified when the traditional services were not enough for recovery from the disaster and that there were many un-met needs left to be addressed within the county.
